Upcoming summer programs
The StoneLion Puppet Theatre will be present their show Reflections at 12:30 p.m. July 13 at the Linwood Library.
The puppet show brings to life the Mekong Delta rainforest and presents rare animals in puppet form, including marionettes and rod puppets.
Zentangle Art Program
The Linwood Library will host a two-hour Zentangle workshop program with Kristina Crawford from noon to 2 p.m. July 15.
The class is open to adults and mature teens, but registration is required in advance. Anyone can attend, and no previous artistic experience is required. Crawford teaches the Zentangle Method, which is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. For more information on the class, visit linwoodcommunitylibrary.org/adultevents.html.
Volunteer homes for squirrels
Operation Wildlife has another batch of rehabilitated grey squirrels ready to be released to new homes mid-July.
A new home needs to have some kind of nut tree (oak, walnut, hickory or pecan), a water source and a relatively quiet area. Squirrels will come with a house and nesting material. Those interested in providing a squirrel home may contact the organization at email@example.com and fill out an application.
